Prized Amalgam was actually in one of my first drafts but it doesn't sound like it works very well with making zombies because the tokens do not technically enter from the graveyard. Geralf might be a maybe only because its players not opponants

7 of your 22 lands come into play tapped. That's way too much for Modern, and an aggressive deck in particular. A slow control deck with 25 lands can get away with 4 Celestial Colonnade, but your deck should not have more than 1-3 tapped lands. (I'm aware those lands have uses outside of playing them and tapping them for mana, but realistically you will have to do that frequently anyway with so many of them.)
As for your choice of spells, it seems like a mix of a Dredge-style deck and a deck focused on Winding Constrictor. While there is some decent overlap, the synergy could be better. With all those creatures that enter from the grave, not playing Prized Amalgam seems wrong to me.
On the other hand, the Constrictor would benefit from more counter related cards, otherwise it's not always pulling its weight. A shell based on the Modular mechanic with Arcbound Ravager and Arcbound Worker as well as Steel Overseer might be the best way to play Constrictor (and also Hardened Scales).

hey there! I used to have an esper deck with scarab god, and he's a pretty crazy card in action. I like that you are using him in an actual zombie list, as that makes him even stronger than how I used him, which was with cards like Archangel Avacyn Flip, who's ETB effects were really strong paired with the ability to flash them from the graveyard at instant speed.
In any case, here's a few ways to increase its competitive play.
Non-rotation proof- this method will be better, but... will rotate.. so you might not like it. Relentless Dead, Prized Amalgam, and Gisa and Geralf are strong options for any zombies deck, as they increase the strength of your recursion, which is a lot of what makes zombies good. Spellweaver Eternal is probably the weakest card in your list, as it isn't a prowess list, so that is the first to replace no matter what suggestions you decide to take. Also, there are better spells than the ones you are running. Black is renown for its removal, so you want to consider using it. You have cards like Grasp of Darkness and Fatal Push to clear a path for the zombies. Also, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is a bomb.
Non-rotation proof esper. Adding white to all the prior statements is pretty strong because of access to even more removal, like Anguished Unmaking, Time to Reflect, and Declaration in Stone, as well as the all-star zombie Wayward Servant, which will double up on the drain effect of scarab god. It also gives you access to the mummies if you'd like to play them. I don't know how it plays in constructed, but when I played it in draft Unraveling Mummy was a killer card, so it is worth trying out!
Rotation proof- without using card from eldritch moon(which is my favorite block so I'm sad it's going), you are much more limited with what you can do, but there are still ways to improve the deck. Fatal push is still open to use, and cards like Hieroglyphic Illumination which was really hard for me to spell, will speed up your deck. If you want to go rotation proof, I'd recommend esper though, or even orzhov. Time to Reflect and Wayward Servant are just soooo good in zombie tribal. It's hard to justify not using them. Also, access to embalm and eternalize is important to remember. Champion of Wits and other good ones like Adorned Pouncer are worth considering, just in case you don't have scarab god to reanimate them.
Hope this helped a bit, if you have any questions, let me know!
